>> Affordable Casket sells about 30 caskets each month with an average price tag of $1,695. While the company has built a reputation for providing cheaper funerals and merchandise, owner Claus Hansen says his most expensive casket, a gold one, like the one legendary pop star Michael Jackson was buried in, will set you back about $40,000.
